A Penny for Your Summertime

You already heard me say I'm thinking about budgeting pennies and summer salads. Incase you missed this, I was over at last week thinking about ice cream trucks and parking lot pennies.

Please join me there for a few thoughts on hot pennies and cool summertime treats. :-)

I’ve been thinking about neighborhood ice cream trucks. We used to be assured of circus music, icy cold treats, and delicious childhood memories every weekend, every summer, thanks to the ice cream truck. We still occasionally hear the bells inviting children to stop their play, climb down from tree houses, turn and look down the oasis-splotched road. The music plays and the children dance.

It’s a sweet childhood memory for those of us now digging into our purses and pockets, snatching Mason jars off windowsills to empty runaway coins onto tabletops, and rummaging in the washing machine for loose change. We long to give our children what we had. A simple ice cream treat. Just a little taste of summertime days and childhood ways.
